At a time when the world’s two acknowledged superpowers seem to be moving towards economic and political conflict, a new feature documentary by two-time Academy Award®–winning director Malcolm Clarke explores how the destiny of both countries became so deeply and inextricably intertwined. By examining the day-to-day lives of ordinary Chinese and American citizens, this feature-length documentary asks; Can the United States survive the rise of China? Is confrontation inevitable? Or, by rediscovering our Better Angels can we find a way to grow beyond our mutual suspicions and misperceptions, to create a stable and prosperous alliance that could benefit the entire world?

BETTER ANGELS, produced over five years, shot on four continents, and created with the participation of three U.S. Secretaries of State, captures compelling stories that highlight the global stakes, challenges and opportunities of the world’s most important bilateral relationship.

Shallow film

November 7, 2018
Produced by the Chinese, this is little more than an exercise in Chinese "soft power" and propaganda and doesn't explore the deeper issues of China's authoritarianism, global expansion, censorship and repression that impact the bilateral relationship as we go forward.
